I can't take credit for the layout and idea for this card.   Ann Schach (The Stampin' Schach) recently showed a card on her blog that was made with this layout.  You can see Ann's card here.

Ann had trimmed the floral design by hand but I didn't have the patience to do such fine cutting.  So I decided to pull out the Backyard Basics stamp and die sets to give the same affect but with less stress. 
The base of the card is Baja Breeze card stock.  I then cut a piece of white card stock which was slightly smaller than the front of the card and ran it through the Cuttlebug using SU Square Lattice embossing folder.  One of the White Tea Lace doilies was cut in half and then sponged with Baja Breeze ink.  A strip of Baja Breeze dp was cut and shaped like a banner. 
A white oval was sponged with Baja Breeze ink.  The next step was stamping the design and coloring it with Baja Breeze and Wild Wasabi markers.  To finish the design, I sponged ink over the areas of the die cut which were white so that the image blended in with the color of the oval.
I really like the layout of this card and will surely use it again using other colors.  Thank you for stopping by!!!
